Talking to folks on Lasqueti about feral sheep?


My name is andrea bennett and I'm a writer living in qathet (specifically in tiskwat/Powell River). I work as a senior editor at TheTyee.ca

I recently learned about the feral sheep on Lasqueti, and would like to speak with people about the sheep. (I read the minutes from the April council meeting where there was a delegation about sheep; it seemed like there was a letter written that a few people signed on to?). 

I am also hoping to get in touch with Tom Weinerth, who led the delegation, if someone can pass a message along. 

I'd like to come visit the island and see the sheep and talk to folks about their history, their place on the island, and the how people feel about their impact to local flora and fauna. 

My email address is andreacunliffebennett [at] gmail [dot] com. I'm happy to share my phone number via email if phone is easier (but would prefer not to post it on the internet :)).

Solar Power & Energy Storage

Hello Lasqueti Community!

I represent a local BC engineering firm that is working on a project designing and building a marine-based solar power generation and energy storage catamaran for boat-access-only communities.

We're at a very important point in our design where feedback from off-grid residents and forward thinkers such as yourselves will be key to our ensuring a world class product with the right features and design elements.

In exchange for your input, we would be happy to offer you a free one week cruise aboard our first yacht, as well as the opportunity to trial our revolutionary new system to power up to 5 homes!

Anyone interested in learning more about our project can email ted [at] unitechengineering [dot] ca for more information, or leave a comment in the forum for further discussion.

We look forward to working with the Lasqueti Island community on this exciting new project in renewable energy and sustainable development!

Kind regards,
